subtle pattern example
bold pattern example
solid soft-textured example
solid color example
the seat cushion is an example of a tighter pattern - ignore the bold back cushion and it's a subtle look
Color scheme is similar, smaller stripes in dark colors create a cozy look with the dark tabletop and trim and white paint
Contrasting piping on a solid cushion - light crisp look
an example using lighter colors, wider stripes - coordinating window shade.
an example of 2 cushions for a long window seat, instead of 1
another simple, solid cushion example.
another simple treatment - you can always dress it up with throw pillows etc.
this window seat really looks like another couch - with the extra plush cushions for the seat and back, and lots of throw pillows.
verrrrrrry looooong window seat :)
wide stripes, symmetry frames and accentuates the lines and architectural details/trim/mantle work etc...
nice gray neutral tone, simple solid, looks good with this rug
another simple treatment of the seat cushion but dressed up with cushions and window treatment
small simple cushion - this is what a medium- sized pattern would look like on a seat
Much more fluffy cushion - notice simple solid color accented by throw pillows
dark gray with lime green piping - nice way to give an unobtrusive accent color
one bold horizontal stripe across the length of the cushion - another idea for using 2 solid colors in a interesting way
example of a simple 2-color, but larger pattern-repeat cushion
